Acting was lame.
G. Headd
This kind of stuff is why our young people are out of control, have no morals, language is disgusting, have no respect for anyone.
Jacqueline Chase
Well, I just didn't care for it; wouldn't watch it again and can't see recommending it.

One of Gerry Butler's early movies but worth seeing for his scenes alone!
The movie SHOOTERS! is a gritty crime drama along the lines of THE USUAL SUSPECTS with many dark scenes of violence and criminal activity. It isn't everyone's cuppa' tea but Gerard Butler fans will find the character he plays -- Jackie Junior -- both violent and charming.
Gerry's character can attack his criminal cohorts in a heart stopping scene one minute and kiss their forheads the next. Jackie Junior has only a few small but memorable scenes and they are dynamite filled with this actor's great energy and bold acting.
Not to be missed if you are collecting the work of this fine actor.

Shooters is in the genre including John Woo's City On Fire (1987), which Tarantino borrowed for Reservoir Dogs (1992). Very violent, with drugs, guns and violence the stars.

While it does not have the balletic grace of Woo's slow-motion shooting scenes, nor a star with the charisma of Chow Yun Fat behind the gun, it is a worthy entry into the genre. The cast acquit themselves well in mostly underwritten roles. Louis Dempsey is fine as recently released from prison Gilly, who is the voice telling the story. His friend(?) J is annoying, but Gerard Butler does a crazed violent and vain gun dealer well.

The gritty streets, sleazy bars and places these underworld people frequent is shown with the contrast to the home J and his wife and child have but he is already among the living dead, as the narrator says. These people walk streets with the rest of us, but their world can turn violent and deadly in a second.

Not great, but I give it a solid 7/10.

The actor Gerard Butler is my favorite and his portrayal of the gangster Jackie Jr. in this film is right on target. Jackie is scary and dangerous one minute and oozing charm the next. He is the highlight of this movie for me but all of the performances are great. The viewer is dragged into the gritty underworld of a UK metropolis and dragged through many sordid episodes. Not for the squeamish but it is a dark study in crime and retribution.

Since I work for a police department the whole "drug" theme of this movie was a little too close to home for me. I did enjoy the movie but you wound up feeling sad for the pathetic lives of the characters. Gerard Butler fans will like his portrayal of a slightly crazy arms dealer. The acting was well done and the plot was unfortunately really close to the type of lives that drug dealers and users actually live.

The movie starts a little slow, and it could be difficult for some americans to understand some of the thick accents, but the story is o.k. Gerard Butler's character and his performance though is worth watching alone. He is Great!!!

Set in the London underworld of drugs and gun dealers. Gilly (Louis Dempsey) and 'J' (Andrew Howard) are two small-time gangsters who find themselves pawns in the games of big-time crime bosses and corrupt police. The dark and moving script is given life through the outstanding performances of everyone in the cast, especially Andrew Howard. He portrays `J' convincingly as a thoroughly sleazy and unredeemable guy. Louis Dempsey's Gilly, who wants to start a new life after he is released from prison, is hopelessly and frustratingly stuck in all the old patterns that landed him in jail in the first place. Dempsey as Gilly narrates the film, and his voice resonates with such profound sorrow and despair that you can hardly remain untouched by it. Little by little these two friends break your heart and win your sympathy until, by the end of the film, you are desperately hoping there is some way out for them. Lots of violence, crude language, certainly not for children. I am not usually a fan of `gangster' movies, but this one is definitely worth seeing.

Didn't even watch the end of it because it was so stupid. Normally I like special effect but these were poor.
